A timely and captivating memoir about gender identity set against the backdrop of the transgender equality movement, by a leading activist and the national press secretary for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization.
Sarah McBride is on a mission to fight for transgender rights around the world. But before she was a prominent activist, and before she became the first transgender person to speak at the Democratic National Convention in 2016, she was a teenager struggling with her identity.
With emotional depth and unparalleled honesty, Sarah shares her personal struggle with gender identity, coming out to her supportive but distraught parents, and finding her way as a woman. She inspires listeners with her barrier-breaking political journey that took her, in just four years, from a frightened, closeted college student to one of the nation's most prominent transgender activists walking the halls of the White House, passing laws, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. She also details the heartbreaking romance with her first love and future husband Andy, a trans man and activist who passed away from cancer in 2014, just days after they were married.
Sarah's story of identity, love, and tragic loss serves as a powerful entry point for listeners who want to gain a deeper understanding of gender identity and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care, identification, and schools, Sarah weaves the important political milestones, cultural and political debates, and historical context into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds.
Tomorrow Will Be Different highlights Sarah's work as an activist and the key issues at the forefront of the fight for trans equality, providing a call to arms and empowering look at the road ahead. The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun.
"We must never be a country that says there's only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live." (Sarah McBride)
